Basic blacksmith course:
This is a one day class with the aim of giving the student a good understanding of the basic skills used in the forge, namely fire control, hammer control, drawing out, bending, twisting and texture refining. By the end of the day you will have made two fundamental tools used in the forge, a poker and fire rake. Cost: €200.

Knife-making course:
Knife-making is an alluring area of forge work that is often what attracts people to take up the craft. This two day course instructs students in a making blacksmith’s, or Viking, knife. The tuition covers fire control, hammer control, drawing out, bevel forming, heat treatment, and grinding. Cost: €400.
